Harrogate’s Tory-led council has been a complete shambles as it first overwhelmingly rejected the building of 210 houses on Spofforth Hill and then did an abrupt U-turn without having the decency to explain why.
This blatant Cuckoo Development – where houses approved by one council live off the services of another – is no way to run a fair-minded housing policy. No wonder Wetherby Tories are looking embarrassed.
Wetherby Lib Dems will dare to support housing if it brings obvious benefits. But this is the wrong development in the wrong place. We have written to the Secretary of State urging that the final decision is taking at Government level after an inquiry, not by Harrogate Borough Council.
